Make Your Own Monster Spray – Includes a Free Printable!


Chase away those bed time bullies with your own Monster Spray - get the free printable!

Recently, we’ve had to deal with an infestation.

Yep, that’s right…we’ve got monsters.

For the last two weeks, my son had suffered from nightmares, and we’re not really certain where they came from. He also started calling out the monsters he could see all over his room (conveniently only after story time before bed).  My husband began to “chase” the monsters away with elaborate sneak attacks and outrageous yelling.

Then I got an idea.

A long time ago I pinned this pin about Monster Spray. I went back to look at it, and discovered it was an image, no post or anything. But how hard can it be?

The next morning, as we got ready to go to daycare, my husband informed my son that Mommy and Daddy were going to a special store that day to get him his very own Monster Spray!!

What we got was a bottle of Lavender Febreze and a plain spray bottle.

We got the lavender because it is supposed to be a soothing smell to help him sleep as well.

I spent my lunch hour on Picmonkey creating a super cute label and spray painting the bottle a shiny maroon. (The spray painting is not necessary, but I can never resist the opportunity.)

I LOVE how the label turned out! :)

I printed the label on some photo paper, trimmed it, and ran it through my Xyron Sticker Maker.  It makes a pretty neat Monster Spray bottle, I’d say. ;)

I am happy to report that, at least so far, it appears to be working!! J sprays the nefarious monsters and their hiding spots each night before bed, and drifts off to sleep without another thought. I’m calling it a win so far!

In case your kiddos are being bullied by monsters, go on and grab a free copy of the “Monster B Gone” label  for your own Monster Spray! Just click the image, then right click in the new window and “Save As”.

  1. What a super idea!!! I would never have thought of this one. We have 3 little grandkids and right now none of them are afraid of monsters… but the time may come when we need some monster spray too.

  2. My youngest went through a phase where he was scared of things in his closet, but thankfully that passed! This would have helped A LOT.

  3. what a great idea. i think this would be a great way to convince kids in a fun way to not be afraid. Mom’s can do it all :)

  4. This is so cute, I made this for my daughter a couple months back and she started to spray her brother in the face…Says he’s a monster. LOL We had to take the bottle away ;) It helped though with the monsters

  5. haha this is too cute and funny at the same time. My kids aren’t afraid of monsters but my toddler is afraid of the dark. I just co-hosted with someone today about monster spray as well. Now I can make my own if ever one develops a fear of monsters.

  6. this sounds like just the formula I need for my daughters room! She tells me all the time that there is a monster in her room!

  7. Such a fun idea and I can totally see it working to scare away nefarious monsters and such. :)

  8. What an fabulously ingenious idea!!

  9. This is absolutely brilliant!! I will have to keep this for later use.. My 4 yr old doesn’t seem to be bothered, but more children to come.. You never know what’ll pop up in their cute little heads!

  10. This sounds like the perfect solution to all those pesky monsters that pop up after the lights go out!

  11. We used to do this when our kids were young. It was the only way to get them to go to sleep. I used some body spray from Bath and body works mixed with water and some food coloring. Then we put it in a bottle like that. It was perfect!

  12. That is such a clever idea, way to go mom for creating it.

  13. Now this is very cute! My six year old son sometimes deals with monsters at bedtime as well, so this will definitely help him feel much better!

  14. What a cute idea! My daughter has started being afraid of everything so I may try thing out with her.

  15. What a super fun idea…love it.. the Lavender Febreze is a great idea and the sticker/label looks awesome…THANKS for sharing

  16. This is a great idea. I need to do this when my daughter gets older.

  17. The world needs more creative moms like you! Great idea indeed. My little sister used to be afraid of monsters, which was solutioned by telling her about guardian angels and buying an angel stuff toy for her. Definitely worked!

  18. This is genius!!! Love it, thanks for sharing at Marvelous MOndays, pinning and sharing on my FB page.

  19. Hilarious! I love kiddos and the wacky things they come up with. Pinning for later!

    Such a cute idea. I’m a librarian and I have a four year old, I read to him a book titled I Need My Monster. It is such a cute take on monsters. I know it’s a little late. ;)
